The ‘self’ name is not magical. If you want it bound to something, you
have to bind it explicitly; it's exactly like any other name.
You will have noticed this being done in methods of a class:
attr = 'spam'
def frobnicate(self, bar):
self.attr = str(bar)
The statements in the method are evaluated in the context of a specific
call to that method, where the parameters have been passed and bound to
the parameter names.
